I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge 3

Hi everyone, today brings a brand new challenge to get your teeth into but first................

here is the winning challenge entry from last month, well done Kerttu!, it was a beautiful card and here is what Letraset had to say about it.

"This card was beautifully coloured. A lot of thought has gone into the use of colour in this card, we love the use of contrasting colours in the details to make the main image ‘pop’ from the busy background paper, yet sit comfortably in the overall design by choosing similar tones to blend in the large areas.

The more unusual elements incorporated into the design made this card stand out for us. Details such as the ribbon cutting into the front image and contrasts of the contemporary, clean image and ribbon against a more rustic string, and the textured/aged background design against the high modern font design made this card interesting and exciting. Well Done."

If you would like to email me you address here I will forward your prize onto you.

Onto this month's prize, another lovely collection of ProMarkers and pad, colours include:
Cocoa, Apricot, Orange, Gold & Satin and all which have been used by the DT in their challenge cards.
A big welcome to our newest members, Lisa and Anelma, lots of inspiration this month to keep you all busy!

All entries need to be in for Monday 5th October, finalists will be announced Tuesday 6th and announced along with a new challenge on the 7th.
Until then, let your creativity loose and direct us to your blogs.

Good Luck!!
..remember, you can use whatever coloured ProMarkers you have in your stash!

(sorry, forgot to add this finalist.x)

"The colouring of the image on this card is excellent and so detailed. It's a perfect card for a 90 year old"

(3 DT Votes)
"Beautiful background papers, a lovely image and stamped beautifully "

" I thought this card had been well thought out, look how the ProMarkers have been carefully teamed up to match the backing papers and even down to the charming piece of string. The little punch detail caught my eye and the stitching, I love the simple rustic feel to it and how it's been photographed, beautiful"

"I looked at all the entries and I absolutely loved so many of them, managed to get it down to two that just leapt out at me and my final decision because of the papers, and image used and the fact that the colours to me are non traditional for the season it is celebrating

"I chose this one because I love the colours and it's nice to see a different image, I think the flowers are great too."

"I think Annie's colouring looks beautiful! I love the soft colours she has used and the lovely flower embellishments finish off her card beautifully."

"I have chose this card by Maria H because of the beautiful colouring, and her choice of papers which shows you that you do not need girlie colours to make a feminine card.
And i also love the stitching on the card."
